Arsenal alerted of big Marcus Rashford problem which could end Man Utd transfer interest

Arsenal have been advised to reconsider their rumoured attempts to buy Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford because he is “not ready” to lead their frontline.

Tony Cascarino believes the England international lacks the clinical edge in front of goal to be counted on to score on a regular basis.

Rashford’s future at Old Trafford appears to be in jeopardy after he expressed dissatisfaction with his playing time under Ralf Rangnick.

His contract ends in the summer of 2023, and according to The Mirror, Arsenal are planning a low-cost move this summer to test Man United’s resolve.

The 24-year-old has lately lost his starting spot to Anthony Elanga, a teenage forward who has impressed after being promoted from the development team.

Rashford, on the other hand, has had his most difficult season as a professional, scoring only five goals in all competitions for Manchester United this season.

After undergoing shoulder surgery following the completion of Euro 2020, the forward missed the first few weeks of the season. 

The Red Devils’ star returned to first-team action in October, but has failed to regain the form that propelled him to a regular starting spot under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Cascarino, a former striker who played for Milwall, Chelsea, and Marseille, believes Rashford has room for improvement and has the potential to become a dangerous striker in the future.

However, given his recent form, the north London club has been urged to look elsewhere for a striker this summer.

“To be a natural striker, and this is something I learned along the way and I got better at as I got older, so Marcus could become better, because there’s no reason why someone can’t improve, you have to be very, very clinical,” the former Republic of Ireland man told talkSPORT

“You have to punish because, if you’re going to a club like Arsenal, they’re looking to progress and be a Champions League team, so you have to be clinical in front of goal.

With the futures of Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah in doubt, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is looking to add a striker this summer. 

The Spaniard was unable to sign Dusan Vlahovic or Alexander Isak in January, but could now turn to Rashford, who has scored 88 goals for his boyhood club since his debut in 2016.

It’s unknown whether United would consider selling to a competitor. The club turned down a bid from West Ham for Jesse Lingard because they saw the Hammers as rivals for a top-four finish.

But with Lingard and Paul Pogba set to leave on free transfers this summer, and United hoping to fund a huge summer upheaval under their prospective new manager, Rashford may be the first high-profile name to head for the door.
